Australsk politi har utvidet granskningen av terror-legene til minst to sykehus.

Police today seized computers and other material from two hospitals in Australia as part of the investigation into attempted car bombings in London and Glasgow.

Detectives also revealed that inquiries in Australia, where the Indian doctor Mohammed Haneef was arrested in Queensland on Monday, had also widened to a third state, New South Wales.

The Australian Federal Police commissioner, Mick Keelty, said four search warrants had been executed in Western Australia and 31,000 documents identified for analysis.

«There are a number of people now being interviewed as part of this investigation, it doesn’t mean that they’re all suspects but it is quite a complex investigation and the links to the UK are becoming more concrete,» he said in the capital, Canberra. There had been no more arrests, he added, and some people would be questioned after a «four-day down time» during which police would examine and compare material with British authorities.

Those being interviewed included foreign doctors of Indian background, but Mr Keelty stressed that anyone questioned in connection with the inquiry was innocent until proven guilty.

The material seized in the hospitals in Perth and the outback mining town, Kalgoorlie, was «similar» to that collected by police in recent days in Queensland. It included computer files that would take some time to analyse, «particularly if in a foreign language».
